Test Dates and Registration Deadlines

The TASC and TASC–ASL tests are scheduled to be administered two times during the testing year. The registration deadlines are strictly enforced; exceptions are not made. 

Selecting a Test Session

TASC and TASC–ASL test sessions are scheduled throughout the day. During registration you will be asked to select a morning or afternoon session. You will be informed of your testing time in your authorization letter. Every effort will be made to grant your request
for a morning or afternoon session. However, it may not be possible to grant your request because of test center capacity limits at the time your registration is received. Please note the following restrictions:

  • You cannot take the same test twice on the same day.
  • A session request can only be selected when you register.
  • Some test centers do not offer sessions in both the morning and afternoon.
  • If you register and select a test session and then make subsequent changes to your test and/or test center selection(s), you will be required to pick from the sessions that are available at the test center at the time of the change.
  • The session you select at registration and your sched­uled appointment time cannot be modified on the day of the test.

Sign Communication Systems for TASC

Test takers registering to take TASC will be asked to identify the sign communication system they would like to use for the test. If you are registering online, you will need to send an email to txtopt-tasc@ets.org indicating your choice of sign communication system. If you are registering by mail, you will select your sign communication system on your registration form.

Interpreter Services

Test takers registering to take TASC or TASC–ASL have the option to request interpreter services for the test administration. Interpreters are responsible for interpreting for the test administrator and anyone else who will be checking the test taker in and reading directions on how to complete the required forms before the interview session. No interpretation is permitted during the interview and interpreters are not allowed in the testing room at any time during the interview. Interpreters cannot provide feedback to test takers, whether hearing or deaf, regarding sign vocabulary. If you are registering online, you will need to send an email to txtopt-tasc@ets.org indicating your need for an interpreter. If you are registering by mail, you will indicate whether you need an interpreter on the registration form.
